The class action lawsuit titled Baker v. The ADT Corporation, et

interfered with by unauthorized third parties.

ANACO: "Shamsnia" Case Can't Proceed as Class Action
----------------------------------------------------
District Judge Otis D. Wright III of the Central District of
California denied plaintiff's motion for class certification in
the case MORTEZA SHAMSNIA, on behalf of himself and all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. ANACO; TYLER PIPE COMPANY; and
MCWANE, INC., Defendants, CASE NO. 2:14-Cv-01431-ODW (VBKX) (C.D.
Cal.)

Morteza Shamsnia owns a condominium unit in The Longford Building,
located at 10790 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. In
2010, a cast-iron pipe allegedly manufactured by defendants
ruptured and caused flooding in his unit. According to him, the
cast-iron pipe failed as a result of a defect in the casting of
the pipe, and the same type of pipe is located throughout the
building. Shamsnia filed a product liability suit against
defendant and seeks to certify a class defined as "All owners or
fractional owners of condominiums and/or common elements/areas in
The Longford building located at 10790 Wilshire Boulevard, Los
Angeles, California".

Judge Wright denied plaintiff's motion for class certification and
finds that the class certification is not appropriate because
Shamsnia failed to carry her burden under Rule 23(a)(4) of the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

A copy of Judge Wright's order dated December 30, 2014, is
available at http://is.gd/7eGULXfrom Leagle.com.

establish that the amount in controversy exceeds $5 million.

The appellate court reversed the district court's remand order and
concluded that the district court has jurisdiction pursuant to the

St. Tammany Parish and conducting concrete crushing operations.

The claimants Daniel and Shirley Wagner are home owners who live
in proximity to the staging area in St. Tammany Parish. Together
with other claimants, they filed a class action lawsuit in the
Civil District Court for the Parish of Orleans against the
Limitation Petitioners, asserting that their properties were
inundated with noise, vibrations, and dust for an extended period
of time. Claimants specifically alleged that the Limitation
Petitioners' operations constituted a nuisance in violation of St.
Tammany Parish Noise and Dust Ordinances and Louisiana general
nuisance law, set forth in Articles 667-669 and 2315 of the
Louisiana Civil Code.  The Limitation Petitioners then proceeded
to file a limitation action in District Court, seeking to limit
any potential liability incurred by the concrete crushing
operations to the value of the vessels owned and operated by
Limitation Petitioners which were engaged in these operations.

Claimants filed a motion to bifurcate issues at trial.
Specifically claimants request that the court first hear argument
and rule on the issue of Limitation Petitioners' ability to limit
their liability, and then, if necessary, conduct a trial regarding
the remaining issues in the case, most notably the issue of
damages.

District Judge Barbier denied claimants' motion to bifurcate
issues at trial, finding that bifurcation is improper.

A copy of Judge Barbier's order and reasons dated January 8, 2015,
is available at http://is.gd/utJUrrfrom Leagle.com.

CGG LAND: Plaintiffs' Proposed Notice to Class Must Be Modified
---------------------------------------------------------------
Before the court in the case captioned R. DANE SHARP, individually
and on behalf of all similarly situated employees, Plaintiff, v.
CGG LAND (U.S.) INC., Defendant, CASE NO. 14-CV-0614-CVE-TLW,
(N.D. Okla.) are plaintiff's brief in support of his proposed
notice to potential plaintiffs and defendant's brief in response.
Each party attached a proposed notice to potential plaintiffs to
its brief.  The Plaintiff's complaint alleges that the defendant
violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. Section
201 et seq., by not including daily cash payments, called "hot
shot" payments, in his regular rate of pay for purposes of
calculating overtime compensation.  The Plaintiff previously moved
to certify this case as a collective action pursuant to 29 U.S.C.
Section 216 and for approval of a proposed notice to potential
plaintiffs.  The Defendant objected, inter alia, to plaintiff's
proposed notice in its response, but it did not provide an
alternative notice or suggest specific changes.  The Court entered
an opinion and order granting first stage conditional
certification of a class of potential plaintiffs but requiring
plaintiff and defendant to meet and confer to develop a notice. If
the parties were unable to agree, they were to submit proposed
notices and briefs in support for the Court's consideration. The
parties have proven themselves unable to agree.

On February 12, 2015, District Judge Claire V. Eagan found that
the plaintiff's proposed notice should be modified. "As defendant
points out, there are numerous statements in plaintiff's proposed
notice that do not meet the standard of an "accurate[] and
informative" discussion of potential plaintiffs' rights. See id.
The Court has revised these statements, either by adopting
defendant's proposed language or by crafting its own. The Court
has also modified statements that were incorrect, such as
plaintiff's description of the class of potential plaintiffs. To
the extent the Court has left unrevised a statement that defendant
revised in its proposed notice, the Court finds that revision is
unnecessary to comply with the Supreme Court's instructions in
Hoffman-La Roche," wrote Judge Eagan in her opinion and order,
a copy of which is available at http://is.gd/nLCQQlfrom

CHI-TOWN PIZZA: Bid to Certify Class in "Rosen" Case Tossed
-----------------------------------------------------------
Rosen Family Chiropractic, S.C. filed a three-count action against
Chi-Town Pizza on Division Street, Inc., doing business as "Chi
Town Pizza Express", alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act (TCPA), 47 U.S.C. Section 227 (Count I), and the
Illinois Consumer Fraud Act, 815 ILCS 505/2 (Count II), and common
law conversion (Count III). Jurisdiction is based on 28 U.S.C.
Sections 1331 and 1367.

The claims concern "an unsolicited fax advertisement" that Rosen
alleges Division sent to him in violation of the TCPA.   Rosen
moved pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 23 to certify a class of
plaintiffs against Division with respect to Rosen's TCPA claim,
and to amend its current Complaint to reflect the class
definitions asserted in its motion.

District Judge John J. Tharp, Jr., on February 13, 2015, denied
the motion in both respects saying Rosen and his putative class
fail to meet the requirements for class certification imposed by
Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

A copy of the Court's memorandum opinion and order is available at
http://is.gd/jNHIzFfrom Leagle.com.

The case is ROSEN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC, S.C. d/b/a WEST LOOP

COHEN & SLAMOWITZ: Court Wants Mediation in "Sam" Action
--------------------------------------------------------
District John T. Curtin of the Western District of New York
refered to mediation the case MARK SAM, Plaintiff, v. COHEN &
SLAMOWITZ, LLP, MITCHELL SELIP, MITCHELL G. SLAMOWITZ, and DAVID
A. COHEN, Defendants, NO. 14-CV-611-JTC (W.D.N.Y.)

The defendant Cohen & Slamowitz, LLP (C&S), a law firm engaged in
the business of debt collection, commenced an action against the
plaintiff Mark Sam, on behalf of its client Midland Funding, LLC,
on or about January 10, 2007, seeking collection of a consumer
debt related to an Aspire Visa credit card issued to plaintiff by
Columbus Bankk and Trust Company. At the time, plaintiff resided
at 57 Union Street, Westfield, New York. C&S obtained a default
judgment against plaintiff.

Plaintiff alleges that he was never served with the summons and
complaint, and never otherwise received notice of the action, the
entry of default judgment, or any debt collection activity until
he received an income execution from the Chautauqua County
Sheriff's office dated April 24, 2014, issued by the law firm of
Eltman Eltman & Cooper (EEC) following substitution of attorneys
and transfer of the Midland file from C&S to EEC.

Plaintiff claims that C&S, along with attorneys/partners Mitchell
Selip, Mitchell G. Slamowitz, and David A. Cohen, violated the
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) venue provision by
bringing the collection action against plaintiff in Dunkirk City
Court on January 10, 2007, at a time when plaintiff was not a
resident of the City of Dunkirk or of a town contiguous to city,
as specified in section 213(a) of the New York Uniform City Court
Act (UCCA).

Plaintiff moved for certification of the class pursuant to Fed. R.
Civ. P. 23. Defendants seek dismissal of the action as time-
barred, based on the one-year statute of limitations for claims
brought under the FDCPA. Defendants further contend that, should
the court consider plaintiff's motion for class certification, it
should be denied as unsupported and premature.

Judge Curtin denied plaintiff's motion for class certification
without prejudice to renew upon a more fully developed record.
Defendant's cross-motion for judgment on the pleadings is also
denied.

Judge Curtin finds that this case is appropriate for immediate
referral to mediation. The parties shall confer and select a
mediator, confirm the mediator's availability, ensure that the
mediator does not have a conflict with any of the parties in the
case, and identify a date and time for the initial mediation
session.  The parties were to file a stipulation confirming their
selection on the form provided by the court no later than February
9, 2015. The initial mediation session shall be held no later than
April 1, 2015.  A status telephone conference shall be held on
April 8, 2015 at 1 p.m. if this matter has not settled. A further
schedule will then be set. The court will initiate the call.

CORNWELL QUALITY: Appellate Court Enforces Arbitration
------------------------------------------------------
Judge Beth Whitmore of the Court of Appeals of Ohio, Ninth
District, Summit County, affirmed in part and reversed in part the
judgment of the Summit County Court of Common Pleas in the
appealed case of DAVID BACHRACH, et al., Appellees/Cross-
Appellants, v. CORNWELL QUALITY TOOLS CO., INC., Appellant/Cross-
Appellee, C.A. NO. 27113 (Ohio App.)

David Bachrach and eight other former Cornwell tool dealers sued
Cornwell Quality Tools Company for compensatory and punitive
damages, alleging common law deceptive trade practices, violation
of Ohio's Business Opportunity Law, fraud, fraud in the
inducement, consumer fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and
breach of fiduciary duty. The former franchisees brought class
action claims in Summit County Common Pleas Court as
representatives of a proposed class of nearly 500.

Cornwell filed a motion to stay pending arbitration, in which the
trial court denied and scheduled a pretrial. Cornwell appealed the
matter before the state appeals court in which reversed the trial
court's denial of Cornwell's motion to stay because Bachrach's
claims fell within the scope of the arbitration agreement.

On remand, a magistrate judge entered an order granting Cornwell's
motion to stay pending arbitration. Approximately one year after
remand, Cornwell filed a counterclaim, requesting the court to
issue: (1) an injunction prohibiting Bachrach from pursuing class
arbitration, and (2) a declaratory judgment that class arbitration
was not permissible under their contracts. Bachrach moved to
dismiss Cornwell's counterclaim.

The magistrate judge issued a decision recommending that the court
deny Bachrach's motion to dismiss because the court, not the
arbitrators, needed to decide whether class arbitration was
permitted. Bachrach filed an objection to the magistrate's
decision, arguing, in part, that the Court of Appeals had already
determined that the claims should be arbitrated as a class. The
trial court rejected the magistrate's recommendation and concluded
as a matter of law that an arbitration agreement that is silent as
to class versus individual arbitration is a question for the
arbitrator, not the court to decide. The court granted Bachrach's
motion to dismiss the counterclaim. Cornwell now appeals and
Bachrach cross-appeals.

In its first assignment of error, Cornwell argues that the lower
court erred in concluding that the issue of class versus
individual arbitration is a question for the arbitrator when the
arbitration agreement is silent on the matter.  In its second and
third assignments of error, Cornwell argues that the court erred
in failing to vacate the arbitrators' clause construction award.
Cornwell concedes that these assignments are moot if the appellate
Court sustains its first assignment of error.

In their sole assignment of error, Bachrach requests the appellate
court, if it sustains Cornwell's first assignment of error, to
vacate the trial court's stay pending arbitration and reinstate
their class claims for litigation.

Judge Whitmore ruled that Cornwell's first assignment of error is
sustained. Its second and third assignments of error are moot.
Bachrach's sole assignment of error is overruled. The judgment of
the Summit County Court of Common Pleas is affirmed in part,
reversed in part, and the cause is remanded for further
proceedings.

COUNTRYWIDE FIN'L: Court Won't Dismiss "Waldrup" 3rd Amended Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Christina A. Snyder of the Central District of
California denied defendants' motion to dismiss in the case
BARBARA WALDRUP v. COUNTRYWIDE FINANCIAL CORPORATION ET AL., CASE
NO. 2:13-CV-08833-CAS (CWX) (C.D. Cal.)

In 2004, plaintiff Barbara Waldrup applied for a loan from
Countrywide Home Loans, Inc. (CHL) to purchase a home. As part of
the loan transaction, CHL required her to procure an appraisal of
the property being purchased and directed plaintiff to obtain that
appraisal from LandSafe Appraisal, Inc. (LSA), which charged
plaintiff $400 for the appraisal. In 2007, plaintiff applied to
refinance her loan through CHL, in which CHL again required
plaintiff to seek an appraisal from LSA, CHL's "sole `approved
appraisal vendor.

On November 27, 2013, plaintiff filed a putative class action
against defendants Countrywide Financial Corporation (CFC),
Countrywide Home Loans, Inc. (CHL), Countrywide Bank, N.A. (BANA),
Bank of America Corporation (BAC), LandSafe, Inc. (LSI), and
LandSafe Appraisal, Inc (LSA). The operative third amended
complaint (TAC) asserts claims for (1) violation of California's
Unfair Competition Law, Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code Sections 17200 et
seq., (UCL); (2) violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt
Organizations Act (RICO), 18 U.S.C. Section 1962(c), (3)
conspiracy to violate RICO, 18 U.S.C. Section 1962(d), (4) fraud;
and (5) unjust enrichment.

Defendants previously moved to dismiss plaintiff's original
complaint, first amended complaint, and second amended complaint.
By order dated October 6, 2014, the Court denied defendants'
motion to dismiss plaintiff's UCL and unjust enrichment claims,
but granted defendants' motion to dismiss plaintiff's RICO and
common law fraud claims. The Court but granted plaintiff leaved to
amend her complaint. Plaintiff filed her TAC on October 27, 2014.
Defendants filed a motion to dismiss the TAC on November 12, 2014,
as well as a request for judicial notice.

Judge Snyder denied in its entirety defendants' motion to dismiss
plaintiff's third amended complaint.

EL LILLY: Appellate Court Affirmed Remand Order in "Dudley" Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Stanley Marcus of the United States Court of Appeals,
Eleventh Circuit, affirmed the decision of the district court to
remand in the case LESLIE PINCIARO DUDLEY, on behalf of herself
and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. ELI
LILLY AND COMPANY, a Foreign For-Profit Corporation, LILLY USA,
LLC, a foreign for-profit Limited Liability company, Defendants-
Appellants, No. 14-13048 (11th Cir.)

Leslie Dudley was an employee of Eli Lilly and Company. Dudley
filed a complaint alleging that Lilly did not make certain
incentive payments due to her and other similarly situated
individuals who had been employed at the company.  Dudley raises
four separate causes of action against Lilly, including a breach
of employment contract, quantum merit, unjust enrichment and
promissory estoppel.

Lilly removed the case to the United States District Court for the
Middle District of Florida pursuant to the Class Action Fairness
Act (CAFA), 28 U.S.C. Section 1332(d), in which Dudley filed a
motion to remand.

The district court granted Dudley's motion to remand the case to
state court, finding that Lilly had not met its burden of
establishing by a preponderance of the evidence that the amount in
controversy exceeded $5,000,000, as required for federal subject
matter jurisdiction under CAFA.  Lilly appealed.

The appellate court affirmed the decision of the district court,
expressing that the district court did not clearly err in
determining that Lilly has not established, by a preponderance of
evidence, that the amount in controversy exceeded $5,000,000.

FORD MOTOR: NJ Judge Dismissed Suit Over Epic Auto Guaranty
-----------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Mary L. Cooper of the District of New Jersey
dismissed the complaint in the case FORD MOTOR CREDIT COMPANY LLC,
Plaintiff, v. MARC FRIEDLAND, et al., Defendants, CIVIL ACTION NO.
14-6561(MLC)(D.N.J.)

Defendant Francine Noce is the president of Epic Auto Leasing, LLC
(EAL). EAL petitioned for bankruptcy relief in which Noce is
listed as a creditor and co-debtor. Ford Motor Credit Company LLC
(FMLLC) has a pending claim therein.

FMLLC brought an action to recover damages for the breach of
certain guaranties against defendants, Marc Friedland and Noce.
FMLLC alleges that the defendants are liable for the indebtedness
incurred by EAL and asserts subject-matter jurisdiction under 28
U.S.C. Section 1332(a). FMLLC alleges that: (1) it is a Delaware
limited liability company, with its principal place of business in
Dearborn, Michigan; (2) Ford Holdings LLC is the sole member of
FMLLC; (3) Ford Holdings LLC is a Delaware limited liability
company with its principal place of business in Dearborn,
Michigan; and thus (4) FMLLC is a citizen of the States of
Delaware and Michigan.

Judge Cooper said Limited liability companies are unincorporated
associations, and thus deemed to be citizens of the states in
which all of their members are citizens, not the states in which
they were formed and have their principal places of business. He
said FMLLC fails to trace through however many layers of members
there may be to determine its citizenship.

Judge Cooper said he intended to dismiss the complaint without
prejudice, because the complaint is deficient on several grounds
but gave FMLLC some options. FMLLC may recommence the claims
asserted in the District Court Action in state court within 30
days, as the limitations period for the cause of action is tolled
by the filing of a federal complaint or FMLLC may move within 30
days in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and
the Local Civil Rules to reopen the District Court Action in this
Court, and simultaneously file supporting documentation.

ITS FINANCIAL: Motion to Strike 2nd Amended Complaint Denied
------------------------------------------------------------
Magistrate Judge Michael J. Newman of the Southern District of
Ohio, Western Division, Dayton denied defendants' motion to strike
the second amended complaint in the case KENYA JOHNSON, Plaintiff,
v. ITS FINANCIAL LLC, et al., Defendants, CASE NO. 3:13-CV-192
(S.D. Ohio)

The case was originally filed by Lia K. Smith-Hutchinson, Phyllis
Laney, and Chelsea Cochran against thirteen defendants for alleged
violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations
Act (RICO), 18 U.S.C. Sections 1961-1968. The original plaintiffs
alleged that defendants engaged in a scheme involving the filing
of fraudulent tax returns; electronically reporting fictitious
income; fraudulently maximizing the Earned Income Tax Credits
(EITC); filing federal income tax returns without the taxpayer's
consent; omitting sources of reportable income on tax returns;
charging excessive fees for tax preparation; and engaging in
fraudulent refund anticipation loans, instant cash loans, instant
cash advances, electronic refund checks and personal income tax
refund discounting scams.

Defendants moved to dismiss arguing that the first amended
complaint failed to allege fraud with sufficient particularity and
failed to allege injury by reason of such fraud. The Court
ultimately granted defendants' motion to dismiss. The Court did,
however, stay dismissal for 30 days and granted plaintiffs leave
to file a second amended pleading. The Court also denied
plaintiffs' motion for class certification without prejudice to
re-filing on the basis that the purported class plaintiffs sought
to certify was substantially overbroad.

A second amended complaint was timely filed on October 20, 2014 by
new Plaintiff Kenya Johnson against Defendants ITS; TCA Financial;
Fesum Ogbazion; Pete Samborsky; and Kyle Wade. Defendants now seek
to strike the second amended complaint on the basis that
substituting named Plaintiffs exceeded the scope of permission
granted in the Court's Decision and Entry dated September 23,
2014.

Magistrate Judge Newman denied defendants' motion to strike the
second amended complaint.

JONAH: Gay "Conversion Therapy" Violates Consumer Fraud Act
-----------------------------------------------------------
Mary Pat Gallagher, writing for Law.com, reports that in a
decision believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S., a
New Jersey state court judge has found that it is a
misrepresentation that violates the state Consumer Fraud Act to
advertise gay "conversion therapy" services by depicting
homosexuality as abnormal or a mental illness.

Ruling in Ferguson v. JONAH, on Feb. 10, Hudson County Assignment
Judge Peter Bariso Jr., further held that touting "success"
statistics for such services in the absence of a factual basis
also amounts to consumer fraud.

Hayley Gorenberg, of Lambda Legal in New York, who has filed
amicus briefs with two federal appeals courts that upheld New
Jersey and California laws banning gay conversion therapy for
minors, said of Judge Bariso's ruling that it is "the first case
to go forward on a consumer fraud basis" and it "makes all the
sense in the world."

Joseph Osefchen of DeNittis Osefchen in Marlton, N.J., said he
agreed with the holding in principle, adding that, as a lawyer who
has done class action litigation almost exclusively for over 20
years, he saw conversion therapy advertisements as "a class action
waiting to happen" because "you are talking about statements in
ads that are seen by hundreds of people."

Judge Bariso granted partial summary judgment to the plaintiffs,
four young men who obtained gay conversion therapy-referred to by
the court as sexual orientation change efforts, or SOCE -- through
Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH), plus two of
their mothers.

They accused JONAH, its co-director and a counselor of fraud,
deception and unconscionable business practices.

JONAH is a Jersey City, N.J., nonprofit formerly known as Jews
Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality.

The suit was brought as a test case by Southern Poverty Law
Center, a nonprofit legal advocacy organization based in
Montgomery, Ala., that specializes in civil rights cases and is
perhaps best known for litigating against the Ku Klux Klan and
other hate groups.

Judge Bariso's ruling came days after a decision in which he
barred testimony by six defense experts at the upcoming trial,
which is slated for June.  He refused to allow their testimony
because it was premised on the view that homosexuality is an
illness or aberration, which he said was contrary to the
overwhelming weight of scientific authority.

In deciding the summary judgment motion, Judge Bariso took
judicial notice of "the general consensus in the mental health
field that homosexuality is not a mental disorder but is instead a
normal variation of human sexuality."  Thus, "any representations
made to the contrary would qualify as []misrepresentations under
the CFA," Judge Bariso said in a statement of reasons accompanying
the order.

JONAH had tried to justify statements that homosexuality is
unhealthy based on information from the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control about HIV and AIDS but Judge Bariso noted that he had
already determined such evidence was irrelevant in ruling on the
experts because the case does not turn on any harms that might be
caused by homosexual conduct.

Regarding JONAH's touted success rate, Judge Bariso acknowledged
there were factual disputes about it but held as a matter of law
that it is a misrepresentation in violation of the CFA "to use
specific success statistics in advertising and selling of services
when client outcomes are not tracked and records are not
maintained."

The plaintiffs also wanted Judge Bariso to hold that it was a CFA
violation to say you can change someone's sexual orientation even
if they continue to feel such desire and are merely altering their
behavior.

That did not constitute "change" in the common sense and could be
misleading, they had urged.

Judge Bariso, however, said he was convinced that an average juror
could find "change" to mean "choosing not to act on homosexual
desires" or to disengage from them and thus the issue was not ripe
for summary judgment.

Also at issue on the motion was whether certain affirmative
defenses should be stricken, with Judge Bariso agreeing as to some
but denying the request as to three others.

He declined to strike a defense predicated on a written disclaimer
saying that results were not guaranteed.

Though it is well settled New Jersey law that a written instrument
cannot immunize from CFA claims, Judge Bariso let the defense
remain because of its relation to the "change" issue.

Also not stricken was a defense based on the First Amendment's
Free Exercise Clause.  Judge Bariso found a genuine issue of fact
as to whether JONAH represents homosexuality as a disorder within
the context of its religious beliefs.

Nevertheless, he denied in its entirety JONAH's cross-motion for
summary judgment based on First Amendment and other grounds.

"The Free Exercise Clause does not limitlessly protect any act
done in the name of religious practice," Judge Bariso said.  He
noted that the alleged statements about a mental disorder had a
medical or scientific basis, rather than a religious basis.

He refused to grant summary judgment for JONAH on the ground that
the statements were mere puffery or that the case is
nonjusticiable because it improperly seeks to resolve societal
issues subject to scientific dispute.

No such dispute exists and the case is not about whether SOCE
works in general or whether sexual orientation can be changed,
only about whether JONAH's practices are ineffective and thus its
claims to the contrary were false, said Judge Bariso.

The opinion "set out the law and explained what a plaintiff has to
prove," said Lina Bensman -- lbensman@cgsh.com -- of Cleary
Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton in New York, one of the plaintiffs'
attorneys.  "You can't cheat gay people out of money by telling
them that they're sick.  I'm not aware of any court that has said
that before."

Nor can you mislead people with statistics that induce them to
believe you've measured when you haven't, Ms. Bensman said.  JONAH
has used varying success rate figures as high as 70 to 75 percent
either in its advertising or in its sales pitches to people who
call or email for more information, she said.

Ms. Bensman referred to the number of groups offering SOCE as
"surprising," and said they include the Thomas Aquinas
Psychological Clinic in Encino, Calif., whose founder and clinical
director, Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., was one of the JONAH experts
barred by Judge Bariso.

Asked if the Southern Poverty Law Center planned to bring any
similar suits elsewhere, its deputy legal director David Dinielli
responded, "We are focusing on this case as we head into trial."

He added that "conversion therapy necessarily is premised on the
lie that homosexuality is disordered."

"Nobody-not in New Jersey or anywhere else-ought to be selling
services that are based on this lie," he said.

JONAH lead counsel Charles LiMandri of the Freedom of Conscience
Defense Fund in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., said the decision would
not change the outcome of the case, pointing out that Judge Bariso
did not make factual findings but left them for the jury and also
left the religious liberty defense intact.

He called his clients "devout Jewish people" who did not say
homosexuality is a mental illness but will say that "in the
context of the Torah, that it is not part of God's plan."  He
added that "people may disagree, they may even be very offended,
but it's a traditional Judeo-Christian belief."


JP MORGAN: New Mexico Judge Dismissed Insurance Broker's Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge James O. Browning of the District of New Mexico
granted JP Morgan's motion to dismiss in the case SONYA LIA VILAR
f/k/a SONYA LIA SAAVEDRA, Plaintiff, v. EQUIFAX INFORMATION
SERVICES, LLC; TRANSUNION, LLC; EXPERIAN INFORMATION SOLUTIONS,
INC.; CHASE HOME FINANCE, LLC; LCS FINANCIAL SERVICES CORP.; RCS
RECOVERY SERVICES, INC.; and REAL TIME RESOLUTIONS, INC.,
Defendants, NO. CIV 14-0226 JB/KBM (D.N.M.)

The plaintiff Sonia Lia Villar was a self-employed insurance
broker. She purchased a property at 501 14th St. N.W.,
Albuquerque, New Mexico. Vilar executed a promissory note and
mortgage on the property with First Franklin Financial Corporation
for $160,000.00. That same day, Vilar executed a second promissory
note and a second mortgage on the property with First Franklin for
$40,000.00. Three or four months later, First Franklin transferred
Vilar's mortgages to JPMorgan Chase.

Vilar suffered a significant decrease in income because of the
2008 recession. Although Vilar tried multiple times to work with
JPMorgan Chase to modify her loan payments, JPMorgan Chase refused
all options but short selling the property or foreclosing on it.
Vilar was delinquent on the second mortgage and to minimize the
damage to her credit score, Vilar marketed the property with
JPMorgan Chase's consent as a short sale.

JPMorgan Chase charged off Vilar's second mortgage and wrote off
its total balance of $39,603.00. JPMorgan Chase also began
notifying credit-reporting agencies that the second mortgage had
been transferred to recovery, but never informed Vilar that it had
charged off the second mortgage and transferred it to a
collections agency.

Vilar commenced a lawsuit on March 8, 2014, but amended the same
on June 26, 2014. The Amended Complaint alleges, among other
things, that JPMorgan Chase: (i) willfully violated Sections
1681s-2(a)(1) and 1681s-2(a)(2) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act
or FCRA; (ii) negligently violated Section 1681i of the FCRA;
(iii) engaged in unfair, deceptive, and unconscionable trade
practices, in violation of Section 57-12-2 of the Unfair and
Deceptive Trade Practices Act or UPA; and (iv) violated Sections
1692g(a) and 1692e(2)(A) of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
or FDCPA.

JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. filed a motion to dismiss for failure
to state a claim.

Judge Browning granted JP Morgan's motion to dismiss. First, Vilar
cannot plausibly allege that JPMorgan willfully violated Section
1681s-2a of the FCRA, because that section does not give rise to a
private cause of action. Moreover, even if Section 1681s-2a gave
rise to a private cause of action, Vilar does not plausibly allege
that JPMorgan Chase reported inaccurate information to any credit
reporting agencies (CRA). Second, Vilar cannot plausibly allege
that JPMorgan Chase negligently violated Section 1681i of the
FCRA, because JPMorgan Chase is not a CRA and is, therefore, not
subject to Section 1681i's requirements. Third, Vilar does not
plausibly allege that JPMorgan Chase violated Section 57-12-2 of
the UPA, because the UPA does not require lenders to disclose all
helpful information, but instead prohibits them from disseminating
misleading, deceitful, or false information; Vilar attempts to
turn the UPA into a full-disclosure statute, when it is not.
Similarly, Vilar's contention that JPMorgan Chase violated the UPA
by misrepresenting that it owned the Second Mortgage when it
accepted the short-sale's proceeds is, at this time, implausible.
Fourth, Vilar does not plausibly allege that JPMorgan Chase
violated either Section 1692g(a) or Section 1692e(2)(a) of the
FDCPA, because it is not a debt collector, and is, therefore, not
subject to the FDCPA.

In ALFRED TYRNE SLAUGHTER, Plaintiff, v. LVNV FUNDING, LLC, et

the court is a motion to withdraw the reference filed by defendant
LVNV Funding, LLC, on October 24, 2014.

On February 12, 2015, Chief District Judge Karon Owen Bowdre
issued a memorandum opinion denying LVNV's motion to withdraw the
reference, without prejudice.

"Given the numerous filings throughout the Alabama bankruptcy
courts, in cases with identical claims, the court finds that
leaving the bankruptcy reference in place will advance the
uniformity in bankruptcy administration, decrease confusion,
promote the economical use of the parties' resources, and
facilitate the bankruptcy process," Judge Bowdre said.

breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing,
violations of the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act, and
violations of the California Unfair Competition Law. In essence,
Campion alleges that Old Republic, a company that sells home
warranty plans, arbitrarily denied claims made by him and a
putative class of similarly situated policyholders of Old Republic
plans, or otherwise cheated him and this class out of benefits
owed under their policies. Plaintiff seeks to certify a class,
while defendant filed a motion for partial summary judgment.

The district court denied Campion's motion to certify a class of
Old Republic policyholders and later granted Old Republic's motion
for partial summary judgment on Campion's claims under the
California Consumers Legal Remedies Act. After the district court
granted partial summary judgment in Old Republic's favor, Campion
and Old Republic reached a settlement agreement and filed a joint
motion and stipulation for dismissal with the district court. The
district court granted the joint motion and stipulation for
dismissal, and Campion brought this appeal to seek review of the
district court's various orders. Specifically Campion questions
the district court's orders denying his motion for class
certification, denying his motion for leave to amend his
complaint, and granting Defendant Old Republic's motion for
partial summary judgment.

The appellate court denied plaintiff-appellant's motion stating
that the appeal is moot because Campion has no financial interest
or other personal interest whatsoever in class certification.
Campion does not stand to gain compensation for his claims
because, under the terms of the settlement, he received their full
value. He settled attorney's fees and costs as well as his
damages.

PHARMACIA CORP: Bid to Exclude Expert Testimonies Gets Partial OK
-----------------------------------------------------------------
TUSCUMBIA CITY SCHOOL SYSTEM, on behalf of itself and all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. PHARMACIA CORPORATION,
Defendant, CIVIL ACTION NO. CV-12-S-332-NW, (N.D. Ala.) is before
the court on defendant's motion to exclude the expert testimony of
Dr. Shaun Crawford, Dr. Lois D. George, Matthew Hageman, Michael
Heard, Dr. James Olson, and Robert Thompson.

In this action, the Plaintiff contends that the defendant was
negligent and wanton (or reckless) in the design, manufacture, and
marketing of electric ballasts for fluorescent light fixtures
containing "the now-banned toxic chemicals known as
Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)." Plaintiff alleges that failing
ballasts release PCBs into classrooms like those maintained by the
plaintiff, and that "PCBs could cause systemic toxic injuries" to
humans.

District Judge C. Lynwood Smith, Jr., in a memorandum opinion and
order dated February 12, 2015, a copy of which is available at
http://is.gd/0pHZYQfrom Leagle.com, granted in part and denied in
part the motion to exclude expert testimony filed by defendant
Pharmacia Corporation. The Court granted the motion as to the
testimony of Dr. Shaun Crawford, Matthew Hageman, Michael Heard,
Dr. James Olson, and Robert Thompson. The testimony of these
witnesses is excluded. The motion as to Dr. Lois George was
denied.

PVH CORPORATION: Court Denies Final Approval of Chavez Suit Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Lucy H. Koh denied final approval of a class action
settlement in JESSIE CHAVEZ, Plaintiff, v. PVH CORPORATION, et
al., Defendants, CASE NO. 13-CV-01797-LHK, (N.D. Cal.).

Plaintiffs Jessie Chavez and Anabel Armenta are former and current
employees of Defendants PVH Corporation, Tommy Hilfiger Retail,
LLC, and PVH Retail Stores LLC. Plaintiffs brought this putative
class action on behalf of current former employees of Defendants,
on the grounds that the Defendants allegedly violated provisions
of the California Labor Code by paying employees with payroll
debit cards, and providing employees with inaccurate or incomplete
wage statements.  The instant action is one of three putative
class action lawsuits filed against Defendants that raise similar
and overlapping allegations regarding the Defendants' use of
payroll debit cards: Scott-George v. PVH Corporation, 13-CV-00441-
TLN, before Judge Nunley of the Eastern District of California
("Scott-George"); and Lapan et al. v. PVH Corporation, 13-CV-5006-
LHK, which is a case related to Chavez that is also before the
Court ("Lapan").

Judge Koh's February 11, 2015 ruling, a copy of which is available
at http://is.gd/jw2vEVfrom Leagle.com, held that the Court denies
final approval on two bases. "First, in spite of the parties'
statements in their filings to the contrary and the language of
the release provision, Defendants and Plaintiffs acknowledged at
the final approval hearing that Defendants intend to use the
Chavez release to bar claims under Labor Code Section 203 based on
facts other than those alleged in the operative Chavez Complaint.
This would violate the rule in the Ninth Circuit that a class
action settlement can only release claims based on an identical
factual predicate as the claims alleged in the operative
complaint. Second, because the notice sent to class members did
not notify the class members that they may be releasing claims
based on facts not alleged in the Chavez Complaint, or alert class
members to the existence of the related Scott-George and Lapan
actions, the settlement notice was inadequate. Either of these two
bases would be sufficient to deny final approval of the
settlement," he said.

Plaintiffs' motion for attorneys' fees and costs, and class
representative enhancement were denied as moot.

RAINERI CONSTRUCTION: Court Okays Settlement in "King" Case
-----------------------------------------------------------
RONNIE KING, et al., Plaintiffs, v. RAINERI CONSTRUCTION, LLC, et
al., Defendants, CASE NO. 4:14-CV-1828 (CEJ), (E.D. Mo.) is before
the Court on defendants' consent motion for approval of a
settlement between the parties and to dismiss the action with
prejudice.

"Considering the totality of the circumstances, the Court finds
the proposed settlement fair and reasonable to all parties," ruled
District Judge Carol E. Jackson, in a memorandum and order dated
February 12, 2015, a copy of which is available at
http://is.gd/BX0u0Nfrom Leagle.com.  "The settlement provides
payment for unpaid overtime compensation as well as liquidated
damages for each named plaintiff. The liquidated damages double
the amount of compensation provided to each plaintiff for unpaid
overtime hours worked. The amounts provided for each plaintiff
surpass or are close to the alleged damages: Ronnie King's damages
for unpaid overtime were $2,116 and he receives a total of $8,000
under the proposed settlement; Danny Carbone's damages were
$25,512.56 and he receives $27,757.92; Dominic Lawson's damages
were $2,950.24 and he receives $10,257.92; Stephen Hill's damages
were $32,880.62 and he receives $20,657.92," he added.

The defendants' consent motion for court approval of the
settlement between the parties is, hence, granted.

The Clerk of Court was directed to make an entry in the docket
record reflecting the dismissal of this action with prejudice.

SANOFI US: Faces Class Action Over Unlawful Sales Practices
-----------------------------------------------------------
Charles Toutant, writing for New Jersey Law Journal, reports that
a putative class action filed in federal court in Newark claims
Sanofi US is engaged in unlawful sales practices designed to
encourage doctors to prescribe its drugs.

The suit claims Sanofi continues to engage in practices similar to
ones that were banned in agreements it signed with federal
officials in 2007, 2009 and 2012, when the company was accused of
misrepresenting to Medicare and Medicaid the average prices of its
drugs.

The suit claims Sanofi gives numerous free samples of arthritis
drug Hyalgan to doctors as a negotiating tool -- often 25 free
units for every 100 purchased -- driving down the effective cost
of the drugs from the amount reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid and
private insurance providers.

The suit also claims the company pays millions of dollars to
nonparties Accenture and Deloitte to promote diabetes drugs
Amaryl, Apidra and Lantus.  The outside companies were retained to
help Sanofi circumvent provisions in the agreements with the
government barring the company's employees from paying kickbacks
to doctors, hospitals and pharmacies, the suit alleges.

The company also paid doctors to give speeches about its drugs and
hosted lavish dinners for doctors, their office staff and their
family members, the suit claims.

Besides Sanofi, the suit names as defendants former CEO
Christopher Viehbacher, as well as Dennis Urbaniak, vice president
of the U.S. diabetes unit, and Raymond Godleski, who worked as a
supervisor in the U.S. diabetes marketing unit.

The suit relies on the assertions of Diane Ponte, a former
paralegal with the company, who says she told her superiors that
certain contracts involving incentives or kickbacks were illegal.
Mr. Godleski told her to approve the contracts despite her
protestations, the suit says.

In January 2013, Mr. Urbaniak instructed Sanofi employees that $2
million in kickbacks for diabetes drugs should be recategorized as
"'communication agency technical costs,'" according to the suit.

In August 2012, Mr. Godleski told employees that $1.95 million
paid to Accenture to fund kickbacks should be categorized as
"'printed materials,'" the suit claims.

Messrs. Urbaniak and Godleski retired from Sanofi in 2013, with
Mr. Urbaniak joining Accenture and Mr. Godleski serving Sanofi in
a consultant capacity, the suit claims.

Filed on behalf of consumers and third-party payors, the suit was
filed in Essex County, N.J., Superior Court on Dec. 18, 2014, and
removed to federal court on Feb. 6.  The class representative is
Plumbers Local Union No. 690 Health Plan, a Philadelphia labor
union with members in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The suit includes claims under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act
and for unjust enrichment and conspiracy.  The suit seeks an
injunction against the practices cited in the complaint, profits
unjustly gained as a result of the conduct complained of, and
compensatory, punitive and treble damages, as well as attorney
fees.

In its removal notice, Sanofi estimates that damages related to
the sale of Hyalgan from 2005 until 2009 would reach $11.7
million, based on a volume of 168,000 units at a cost of $70 each.

But the total amount would be greater because the plaintiff's
claims extend to the present, Sanofi's notice said.  And applying
the plaintiff's estimates that Hyalgan's prices were inflated by
25 percent would mean the suit claims net sales of the drug were
inflated by $80 million from 2005 until 2009, the drug company
said.  As for the alleged kickbacks on the three diabetes drugs,
the complaint identifies nine contracts totaling payment of $34
million.

The plaintiff is represented by Donald Haviland of Haviland Hughes
in Ambler, Pa., who did not return a call seeking comment.

Sanofi's lawyer is Liza Walsh -- lwalsh@connellfoley.com -- of
Connell Foley in Roseland, N.J. Sanofi said in a statement, "These
allegations are without merit, and Sanofi will vigorously defend
the suit."

Accenture and Deloitte did not respond to requests for comment.

STATE FARM: March 12 Pretrial Conference in "Guadiana" Case
-----------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Frank R. Zapata of the District of Arizona ruled on
the parties' motions in the case Rosemary Guadiana, Plaintiff, v.
State Farm Fire and Casualty Company, Defendant, NO. 07-326-TUC-
FRZ (D. Ariz.)

Rosemary Guadiana filed a class action suit against the defendant
State Farm Fire and Casualty Company for coverage under her
homeowner's insurance policy. She alleged that defendant breached
the policy by failing to pay the costs incurred in tearing out and
replacing the part of the structure necessary to replace the
polybutylene (PB) piping after she sustained water damage caused
by a leak in the PB plumbing system in her home.

The matter was referred to Magistrate Judge Leslie A. Bowman for
all pretrial proceedings and report and recommendation in
accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. Section 636(b)(1) and
LRCiv 72.1 and LRCiv 72.2 of the Rules of Practice of the United
States District Court for the District of Arizona.

The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment, motion to
decertify the class, and objections to the Magistrate Judge's
order denying its motion to exclude the testimony of Daniel
Johnston. Plaintiff filed a motion for final judgment.

Judge Zapata accepted and adopted the Report and Recommendation of
Magistrate Judge Bowman and made the following pronouncements:

(1) defendant's motion for summary judgment is denied;
(2) defendant's motion to decertify the class is denied;
(3) Magistrate Judge's order is affirmed and;
(4) plaintiff's motion for final judgment is denied.

A Pretrial Conference is set for Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 10:00
a.m.  The parties were to file a proposed Joint Pretrial Order on
or before January 30, 2015.

SUPERSHUTTLE INTERNATIONAL: Williams Suit Deal Gets Final Okay
--------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge William H. Orrick granted final approval of a class
action settlement in MICHAEL WILLIAMS, et al., Plaintiffs, v.
SUPERSHUTTLE INTERNATIONAL, INC., et al., Defendants, CASE NO. 12-
CV-06493-WHO, (N.D. Cal.).

Judge Orrick held that the proposed Settlement Agreement is fair
and reasonable and therefore approved.

The Court certified, for settlement purposes only, pursuant to
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 23 and 29 U.S.C. Section 216(b),
a settlement class defined as: All individuals currently or
formerly employed by Defendants SuperShuttle International, Inc.
or SFO Airporter, Inc. d/b/a/Compass Transportation as bus
drivers/operators in California at any time from December 21,
2008, through the date of Preliminary Approval of the Settlement.

Steven G. Tidrick, Esq., and Joel Young, Esq., of The Tidrick Law
Firm were appointed as Class Counsel and Plaintiff Michael
Williams was appointed as the Class Representative.

This class action settlement resolves a wage-and-hour dispute on a
class-wide basis, ruled Judge Orrick.

An "enhancement" payment to Plaintiff Michael Williams of $3,000
is justified, he added.

Settlement Administration Costs, as defined in the Settlement
Agreement and described in open court at the hearing, are
justified, and will be paid from the common-fund settlement of
$300,000, he said.

The Court ordered an award of $75,000 in attorneys' fees and
$911.44 in incurred litigation costs to The Tidrick Law Firm, and
an "enhancement" payment to Plaintiff Michael Williams of $3,000,
from the common-fund settlement of $300,000.

SWATCH GROUP: N.J. Judge Dismissed "Reed" Class Suit
----------------------------------------------------
District Judge Esther Salas of the District of New Jersey granted
defendant's motion in the case ELLIOT REED, MICHALE ASTA,
individually and on behalf of others similarly situated,
Plaintiffs, v. THE SWATCH GROUP (US), INC., Defendants, CIVIL
ACTION NO. 14-896-(ES)(MAH) (D.N.J.)

Plaintiffs Elliot Reed and Michael Asta purchased some items at
defendant's store at Swatch Garden State Plaza in New Jersey and
at Swatch Times Square in New York respectively. Both used their
credit cards in paying their purchased items and received from
defendant an electronically-printed receipt that displayed the
expiration date of their American Express credit cards.

On November 23, 2013, the plaintiffs brought a consumer class
action on behalf of themselves and others who, on or after June 3,
2008, made purchases at retail locations operated by the defendant
and were provided with a printed receipt that displayed the
expiration date of the their credit or debit card. Plaintiffs
assert that by not truncating the expiration date from the
receipt, defendant violated the Fair and Accurate Credit
Transactions Act (FACTA) amendment to the Fair Credit Reporting
Act, 15 U.S.C. Section 1681, et seq., as amended (FCRA).
Plaintiffs also allege that defendant's actions violated N.J.
Stat. Ann. Section 56:11-42 (West 2014), a New Jersey statute with
provisions similar to FACTA's.

Defendants filed a motion to dismiss plaintiffs' complaint
pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6).

Judge Salas granted the motion to dismiss, tossing plaintiffs'
FACTA claim without prejudice. Plaintiffs' N.J. Stat. Ann. Section
56:11-42 is dismissed without prejudice.  Plaintiff were given 30
days to file an amended complaint to cure the deficiencies.

SYNGENTA CORP: Jack Class Suit Consolidated in MIR162 Corn MDL
--------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit styled Jack H. Winslow Farms, Inc., et
al. v. Syngenta AG, et al., Case No. 4:15-cv-00016, was
transferred from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District
of North Carolina to the U.S. District Court for the District of
Kansas (Kansas City).  The Kansas District Court Clerk assigned
Case No. 2:15-cv-02582-JWL-JPO to the proceeding.

The lawsuit is consolidated in the multidistrict litigation known
as In re: Syngenta AG MIR162 Corn Litigation, MDL No. 2:14-md-
02591-JWL-JPO.

The cases concern the Syngenta defendants' alleged decision to
commercialize corn seeds containing a genetically modified trait,
known as "MIR162," that reportedly controls certain insects.  Corn
with this trait has entered U.S. corn stocks but has not been
approved for import by the Chinese government, which has imposed a
complete ban on U.S. corn with this trait.  The Plaintiffs are
corn growers and grain exporters, who allegedly suffered economic
losses resulting from China's refusal to accept MIR162 corn.

TAKASHI YOSHIDA: May 27 Final Fairness Hearing on Leap Suit Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Gene E.K. Pratter granted preliminary approval of a
class and collective action settlement in DEREK LEAP, Plaintiff,
v. TAKASHI YOSHIDA et al., Defendants, CIVIL ACTION NO. 14-3650,
(E.D. Penn.).

Judge Pratter's February 12, 2015 order, a copy of which is
available at http://is.gd/duChnqfrom Leagle.com, says the
Settlement Agreement defines the Class/Collective Members as "all
employees who worked at [Defendants' restuarants] Hikaru Center
City and Hikaru Manayunk from June 14, 2011 until October 5,
2014."

Under the Settlement Agreement, Defendants will pay a maximum
settlement amount of $225,000 (the "Settlement Payment"). The
Settlement Payment includes attorneys' fees and costs, awards to
Class/Collective Members who join the litigation by submitting an
Opt-In Form ("Opt-In Plaintiffs"), a $5,000 service claim to Mr.
Leap, and the cost of a claims administrator. The remainder of the
Settlement Payment after deducting attorneys' fees and costs, the
service claim, and the cost of a claims administrator (the "Net
Settlement Fund") will be paid as FLSA damages to the Opt-In
Plaintiffs on a percentage basis. Each Opt-In Plaintiff's share of
the Net Settlement Fund will be determined by multiplying the Net
Settlement Fund by the quotient of the number of hours the Opt-In
Plaintiff worked as a server at Hikaru Center City and/or Hikaru
Manayunk between June 14, 2011 and October 5, 2014, and 26,353
hours (the total number of hours that all servers worked at those
restaurants during the relevant time period). Any money that
remains from the Net Settlement Fund after payments are made will
be returned to the Defendants.

Derek Leap is preliminarily appointed Class Representative and
Jeffrey Goldman, Esq. and Alice W. Ballard, Esq. are preliminarily
appointed Class Counsel.

The Court conditionally certified the Collective as satisfying the
prerequisites of the FLSA, 29 U.S.C. Section 216(b).

Class counsel is permitted to file a motion for attorneys' fees,
costs, and expenses. Class counsel is seeking up to $75,000 in
attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses, to be paid from the
Settlement Fund. Any such motion must be filed no later than May
6, 2015, said Judge Pratter.

Any Motion for Final Approval or other memoranda regarding the
approval of the settlement or in response to objections will be
filed no later than May 6, 2015.

A Final Fairness Hearing will be held at 11:00 a.m. on May 27,
2015, in Courtroom 10B, United States Courthouse, 601 Market
Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106.

The notice will provide that Class/Collective Members may respond
in writing to the motion for attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses
and any other briefing submitted by the parties no later than May
20, 2015.

TOLEDO, OHIO: State Supreme Court Flips Ruling in Traffic Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Supreme Court of Ohio reversed the judgment of the Court of
Appeals and remanded the action to the trial court in the appealed
case entitled WALKER, APPELLEE, v. THE CITY OF TOLEDO ET AL.,
APPELLANTS, NO. 2013-1277 (Ohio)

In 2008, the city of Toledo enacted Toledo Municipal Code (TMC)
313.12, authorizing an automated traffic-law-enforcement system
that assesses civil penalties against a vehicle's owner for
speeding and red-light violations. The enforcement apparatus
includes a camera and a vehicle sensor and automatically produces
photos, video, or digital images of vehicles violating these
traffic laws.  Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., provides the
equipment and shares the revenue with Toledo.

Bradley Walker, received a notice of liability for a traffic
violation under TMC 313.12, and he paid the city $120, without
pursuing an administrative appeal. He then filed a class-action
complaint against Toledo and Redflex for unjust enrichment,
seeking their disgorgement of all civil penalties. The complaint
asserted that TMC 313.12 is unconstitutional because it usurps the
jurisdiction of the municipal court, is unconstitutionally vague,
and violates due process. The City of Toledo and Redflex filed
motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim for which relief
can be granted pursuant to Civ.R. 12(B)(6), which the trial court
granted.

Walker appealed, and the Sixth District Court of Appeals reversed,
holding that TMC 313.12 is an unconstitutional violation of
Article IV, Section 1 of the Ohio Constitution. The court held
that without the express approval of the General Assembly, Toledo
had divested the Toledo Municipal Court of the power granted to it
by the legislature in R.C. 1901.20. Toledo and Reflex appealed on
the issue whether Toledo's civil administrative enforcement of its
traffic ordinances violates the Ohio Constitution or R.C. 1901.20.

Justice Kennedy reversed the judgment of the court of appeals with
regard to its holding that the ordinance infringes upon the
jurisdiction of the municipal court, and remanded the matter to
the trial court.

WAL-MART STORES: Pa. Supreme Court Affirms $187MM Jury Verdict
--------------------------------------------------------------
Kim M. Watterson and Richard Heppner Jr. of Reed Smith's
Pittsburgh office, in an article for, Law.com, report that the
Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently affirmed a $187 million jury
award to a class of Pennsylvania Wal-Mart employees in Braun v.
Wal-Mart Stores, No. 32 EAP 2012, __ A.3d ___ (Pa. 2014).
Commenters have suggested Braun conflicts with the U.S. Supreme
Court's holding in Wal-Mart Stores v. Dukes, 131 S.Ct. 2541
(2011), that a class may be certified only when the individual
class members' claims are susceptible to common proof without
reliance on statistical evidence.

Although federal and Pennsylvania law impose similar requirements
for proceeding as a class, including the commonality requirement,
Dukes and Braun seem to diverge in their approaches to
commonality.  But do their holdings actually conflict? While the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and related case law do not
control state-court proceedings, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court
examined Dukes and apparently found it compatible with the holding
in Braun.

To understand whether Dukes and Braun diverge (and, if so, why),
it is important not to read either case too broadly, carefully
distinguishing their holdings and rationales.  First, on close
examination, Dukes does not necessarily bar -- and Braun does not
necessarily permit -- statistical evidence in every case. Instead,
both decisions turned on the link (or lack thereof) between the
specific claims and evidence at issue.  Second, the Dukes and
Braun plaintiffs relied on statistical evidence to prove different
elements -- liability in Dukes and damages in Braun.  Third, the
questions on appeal -- and arguably the appellate analysis itself
-- differed because the appeals arose from different kinds of
orders: Dukes from an interlocutory class-certification order;
Braun from a final judgment.

A look at these differences may provide guidance for parties
facing class actions in Pennsylvania state court and show that
Braun does not entirely foreclose defendants from pressing the
Dukes rationale.

Individual Discriminatory Acts vs. Company Policies

The differences between the liability theories underlying the
class claims in Dukes and Braun might account for the courts'
different views on the use of statistical evidence.  In Dukes, the
U.S. Supreme Court held that a nationwide class of 1.6 million
Wal-Mart employees alleging gender discrimination could not be
certified because the class claims were not based on common
questions of law or fact.  The court rejected the plaintiffs'
argument that commonality existed because Wal-Mart's allegedly
biased "corporate culture" made every class member a "victim of
one common discriminatory practice."  The court reasoned that the
plaintiffs' proffered statistical analysis was "worlds away from
'significant proof' that Wal-Mart operated under a general policy
of discrimination," especially given Wal-Mart's anti-
discrimination policies and policy allowing individual managers to
make individual pay and promotion decisions, "just the opposite of
a uniform employment practice that would provide the commonality
needed for a class action."

In Braun, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court affirmed a $187 million
jury award to a class of 187,979 Wal-Mart workers who claimed Wal-
Mart denied them promised paid rest breaks in violation of their
contracts and state wage laws.  Wal-Mart argued that, after Dukes,
the plaintiffs could not use statistical evidence to prove Wal-
Mart caused the class members to miss their promised breaks.  But
Braun distinguished between the Dukes allegations -- based on a
nebulous corporate culture that allegedly caused individual store
managers to discriminate on the basis of gender -- and the Braun
allegations, based on Wal-Mart policies that allegedly pressured
store managers to take actions that denied employees their breaks.
Pointing to this distinction, Braun held the plaintiffs had
produced classwide liability evidence in the form of Wal-Mart
break and scheduling policies, and internal audits showing the
average number of missed breaks for Wal-Mart employees nationwide
over part of the class period.  Braun treated this as direct, not
statistical, evidence and held it was "sufficient to support the
fact-finder's determination that there was an extensive pattern of
discrepancies between" breaks earned and breaks taken.  Thus,
Braun did not authorize the use of statistical evidence in all
circumstances, but instead found that the plaintiffs offered
direct evidence of a classwide discrepancy.  And, given that
evidence, Braun concluded that the classwide liability finding
could stand because both parties "had ample opportunity to . . .
show that the discrepancies were or were not evidence of classwide
wage-and-hour violations."

Liability vs. Damages

Braun explained that the plaintiffs' statistical evidence was
relevant primarily to damages, not to liability (as it was in
Dukes).  That difference figured into Braun's holding that Wal-
Mart had not been subjected to "trial by formula," in
contravention of Dukes.

Wal-Mart argued in Braun that the plaintiffs impermissibly proved
classwide liability -- that Wal-Mart had systematically denied
breaks to the entire class over the entire class period -- based
on evidence showing, at most, that some plaintiffs had missed
breaks during part of the class period.  Current Chief Justice
Thomas G. Saylor, who dissented, agreed, explaining that the
plaintiffs presented only individual testimony from a few
employees and incomplete records, and then relied on "gross
generalizations and assumptions which permitted the simple
averaging and extrapolations offered up by [the plaintiffs']
expert witnesses" to support the conclusion that any discrepancy
between breaks earned and breaks taken "reflected rest breaks
forgone on account of payroll pressure exerted from the Wal-Mart
boardroom."  But the Braun majority disagreed, holding that the
plaintiffs' proof was not "trial by formula" because the
"extrapolation evidence" was used to determine "the amount of
damages" for the class, not liability, which was permissible under
Comcast v. Behrend, 133 S.Ct. 1426 (2013).

Appeal From Final Judgment vs. Class Certification Order

Dukes involved an appeal from a class certification order, while
Braun involved an appeal from a final judgment.  Given this
difference, the questions on appeal were slightly different: Dukes
asked whether the class claim was susceptible to common proof at
trial, while Braun asked whether the plaintiffs actually produced
common proof at trial.

Theoretically, that distinction should not make a significant
difference -- if anything, the former seems easier to show than
the latter.  But, in practice, the different procedural postures
might have led to the divergence in results because it often is
more difficult to convince an appellate court to overturn a
judgment after a jury trial than to overturn a judge's
interlocutory ruling.  Thus, it would make sense -- and surely be
more economical -- to push for an immediate appeal from a class
certification order. But, in practice, class actions in
Pennsylvania courts usually get to the appellate court only after
final judgment, as in Braun.  In federal court, a party may
petition the appellate court for an immediate appeal from a class
certification order, without seeking the trial court's permission.
By contrast, in Pennsylvania, class certification orders are
treated like any other interlocutory order, and parties must first
seek leave from the trial court before petitioning the appellate
court.  Leave to appeal is rarely granted because they are "the
type of interlocutory order which is not usually appealable," as
in Pincus v. Mutual Assurance, 321 A.2d 906, 908 (Pa. 1974).

Looking Forward

While Braun will not necessarily open the floodgates, it probably
will encourage plaintiffs to file more class actions in
Pennsylvania court, and it poses new questions and considerations
for defendants.

First, removal (when federal subject-matter jurisdiction exists)
always is an option if it appears the defendant will fare better
under Dukes.  Whether that is so depends on the claims and the
statistical evidence likely to be presented.  Are the claims
susceptible to or dependent on proof by statistical means? For
liability or only for damages? What such evidence is available?

Second, if the case proceeds in state court, the same questions
are relevant when deciding whether to rely on Dukes to oppose
class certification.  At least for some kinds of claims, Braun
leaves room to argue that the Dukes rationale applies at the
certification stage because the claims are not susceptible to
statistical proof.

Third, if a class is certified, it is worth considering seeking an
immediate appeal, even though the odds of getting appellate review
might be slim.  Trial courts sometimes can be persuaded to certify
class certification orders for appeal, and appellate courts
sometimes will accept the appeal even if the trial court has not
certified its order, as in Foust v. Southeastern Pennsylvania
Transportation Authority, 756 A.2d 112 (Pa. Commw. Ct. 2000).

Fourth, if the case proceeds to trial, defendants should consider
moving to limit any statistical evidence to the damages phase.
Given Braun's approval of the use of statistical evidence to
determine damages -- but Dukes' admonition against using it to
prove classwide liability -- it might be possible to convince a
trial court that bifurcation is necessary to prevent statistical
evidence from influencing a jury's view on liability questions.

In sum, Braun is not a wholesale endorsement of the use of
statistical evidence to prove class claims.  Defendants should
scrutinize the nature of the claims and the statistical evidence
proffered at every stage of the proceeding, examining whether the
circumstances at hand are more like Braun or Dukes.

WESTERN PACIFIC: Appeals Court Reversed Arbitration Order
---------------------------------------------------------
Justice Gilbert Nares of the Court of Appeals of California,
Fourth District, Division One reversed the lower court's order
denying defendant-appellant's motion to compel arbitration in the
appellate case of REBECCA RENEE GILLESPIE, Plaintiff and
Respondent, v. WESTERN PACIFIC HOUSING MANAGEMENT, INC., Defendant
and Appellant, NO. D066354 (Cal. Ct.)

Western Pacific Housing Management, Inc. is a homebuilding company
based in Texas that builds homes in California. Plaintiff Rebecca
Renee Gillespie was hired and employed by Western Pacific in 2006
as a sales representative in Southern California selling homes.
Upon her employment plaintiff signed a mutual arbitration
agreement (MAA) which provides that all employment-related claims,
including those related to wages will be subject to arbitration.

In October 2007 Gillespie filed a class action lawsuit on behalf
of herself and all individuals employed by Western Pacific in the
position of salesperson within California from four years prior to
the filing of the action. The complaint alleged Western Pacific
improperly classified her and other salespersons as exempt from
overtime law and that, as a result, she and other salespersons did
not receive required meal and rest breaks. The complaint asserted
causes of action for violation of meal and rest break law,
penalties pursuant to Labor Code section 203, and violation of
Business and Professions Code section 17200. In November 2007
Gillespie filed a first amended complaint adding a cause of action
for violation of Labor Code section 2699. The parties thereafter
stipulated to transfer venue from Alameda County to San Bernardino
County.

Western Pacific brought a motion to compel arbitration, pursuant
to the mutual arbitration agreement (MAA). Gillespie opposed the
motion, arguing: (1) the MAA was both procedurally and
substantively unconscionable; (2) Western Pacific waived its right
to compel arbitration through unreasonable delay and use of the
judicial process, to the prejudice of Gillespie; (3) the MAA was
in violation of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and was
therefore unenforceable; (4) under the holding in Gentry, supra,
42 Cal.4th 443, the MAA would be invalidated; and (5) the MAA
barred Gillespie from acting as a private attorney general to
recover under PAGA based on the holding of Brown v. Ralphs Grocery
Co. (2011) 197 Cal.App.4th 489.

The court denied the motion finding (1) Western Pacific waived its
right to enforce the agreement by litigating the action for four
years before seeking to compel arbitration, and (2) the MAA was
unconscionable. Western Pacific appealed.

On appeal Western Pacific asserts the court erred by (1) finding
the MAA was unconscionable and (2) finding that it waived the
right to compel arbitration.

The Appellate Court reversed the lower court's order denying the
motion to compel. Justice Nares held that Western Pacific did not
waive its right to compel arbitration. The MAA is not
unconscionable and the class action waiver is enforceable.
However, the class action waiver cannot apply to Gillespie's claim
under the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (PAGA) (Lab. Code,
Section 2698 et seq.). The matter is remanded for further
proceedings.

2014, is available at http://is.gd/Em9p6Dfrom Leagle.com

ZOND LLC: Judge Recommends Partial Dismissal of TSMC Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
Magistrate Judge Christopher J. Burke of the District of Delaware
recommends approval, in part, of the defendant's motion to dismiss
in the case TSMC TECHNOLOGY, INC., TAIWAN SEMICONDUCTOR
MANUFACTURING COMPANY, LIMITED and TSMC NORTH AMERICA CORP.,
Plaintiffs, v. ZOND, LLC, Defendant, CIVIL ACTION NO. 14-721-LPS-
CJB (D. Del.).

Plaintiff Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Ltd. (TSMC
Ltd.) is a corporation organized under the laws of Taiwan, with
its headquarters in Hsinchu, Taiwan. Plaintiff TSMC Technology,
Inc. (TTI) is a corporation organized under the laws of Delaware
with a place of business in San Jose, California, and is an
indirect subsidiary of TSMC Ltd. Plaintiff TSMC North American
Corp. is a corporation organized under the laws of California,
with a place of business in San Jose, California, and is a
subsidiary of TSMC Ltd.

Zond is a limited liability company organized under the laws of
Delaware. It has its principal place of business in Mansfield,
Massachusetts. Zond is the owner of the various patents, United
States Patent Nos. 6,806,651 (the 651 Patent), 6,896,773 (the 773
Patent), 6,896,775 (the 775 Patent), 6,903,511 (the 511 Patent),
7,095,179 (the 179 Patent), and 7,446,479 (the 479 Patent),
collectively known as the Group Two Patents.

Zond filed seven actions against seven different defendants or
sets of defendants in the United States District Court for the
District of Massachusetts. In each case, Zond alleged infringement
of seven of Zond's patents. Although the number and identity of
the defendants changed during the case, those defendants
eventually came to include TSMC Ltd. and TSMC NA. Zond focused its
infringement allegations on certain TSMC products manufactured
using unique manufacturing processes.

On June 2, 2014, the First TSMC Massachusetts Action was
administratively closed, due to pending inter partes review
proceedings occurring before the United States Patent and
Trademark Office (PTO). On June 5, 2014, counsel for Zond sent a
letter addressed to TSMC Ltd.

Instead of reaching out to Zond's counsel, TSMC et al. commenced
an action seeking declaratory judgment that they do not infringe,
directly or indirectly, each of the Group Two Patents. On July 8,
2014, Zond filed the Motion to Dismiss.

Magistrate Judge Burke recommends that defendant's motion to
dismiss be granted-in-part.  A copy of Magistrate Judge Burke's
report and recommendation dated January 8, 2015, is available at
